How we can hijack the media, in four easy lessons
Love it, hate it, good story, bad story... the media are going to keep reporting on ME/CFS no matter what. But isn’t it time that we saw that coverage as an opportunity?

    Wow! And I see on WPI's Vivint page that they've received $35k in donations - wasn't that loads, loads smaller this morning? Presumably they won't get all of that matched as I imagine it's on a first donated, first matched basis but it's good news.

    I'll be glad when this contest is finished and we can relax but meanwhile we've done very well!

    What's going on, WPI is back down to $24,000?

    I don't understand why Vivint isn't advertising the Matching Opportunity either :confused:

    Wow... that's a lot of donations for such a short period. And i remember some people saying it's not possible to raise money from the ME/CFS community...

    That is crazy good. The best news this week! Really delighted by the response - shows how much potential the ME/CFS community has.
